I work with several tools and modalities. Together we choose the one/s that best fit your needs. I teach you how to work with them as tools in your life. To follow is a partial list of some of the tools and modalities that we may work with.
–Goal Setting. Establishing a goal and creating a plan to realize that goal through SMART goal setting tool. Together we outline actionable steps with measurable outcomes, to be implemented within a certain time frame.
–Myths and Storytelling. Often times we get stuck in our own stories. Once we can see our story as a parallel to a myth we can view our lives from an objective perch. Examining a myth pulls us outside of ourselves and allows us to see ourselves more clearly through the lens of another’s story.
–Archetypes and Archetypal Energy. Most of us are familiar with the term ‘inner child’ or ‘victim’, however, according to Carolyn Myss, we all have 12 archetypes that predominate our lives. This is a powerful tool to learn about yourself and your propensity to respond with specific behaviors. Big shifts occur when understanding your archetypes and learning how to work with them.
–Light and Shadow Work. First identified in the work of Carl Jung, there is a duality that resides in the individual and the collective. Shadows form when something blocks the light, our work together shines light onto your shadow self. This work is at the crux of self-inquiry, connecting us with our spirit, our light, and our highest self.
-Personal Symbols. Often physical objects or beings show up in our dreams or lives, such as feathers or animals. Recognizing the symbolism of these messages and how to work with them opens us to a deeper connection with our intuitive and spiritual selves.
Natural symbols date back to the aboriginal, early man, is seen prominently in Native American traditions. They can be powerful teachers and informative tools to keep us in alignment with our personal paths. I help you find yours and teaches you how to work with it to gain greater clarity and insight.
-Metaphor. I love a good metaphor. They are everywhere. Identifying with a metaphor removes the stigma of isolation – that this is not something uniquely yours. Seeing it from a different perspective, a ‘bird’s eye view’, or in the form of metaphor can be empowering, less isolating, and removes the inner judgment, allowing us to be more loving and less judgmental to ourselves.
–Journaling. There are different styles of journaling, let’s find the the one that works for you. For many, a daily practice reveals your inner truths in a way that cannot be achieved through talking or other forms of self-exploration.
Some of the styles of journaling:
Sketching and Writing
–Guided Visualization. These are generally short, 10-15 minute meditations, with a specific intention personalized for you.
-Yoga Nidra Meditation. This is an ancient practice of deep meditation, often referred to as sleep based mediation.
-Breath Work. Learn how to connect with your breath to create an inner calm and peace. This is especially useful during times of stress. It helps reduce stress
